Royer R-121

Ribbon Mic, Large Element (2.5-micron), Nickel Finish


Designed by the legendary David Royer, the hand-built R-121 gives you all the benefits of a classic ribbon microphone, but in a lightweight, higher output and rugged package for modern recording versatility.

Sporting a 2.5-micron aluminum ribbon, and featuring a traditional figure-8 pattern with a warm, realistic tone and flat frequency response, it can handle the high SPLs (135 dB maximum) of today's audio applications with ease.

At distances of three feet and closer, the back of the R-121 records slightly brighter than the front side. This can be extremely useful when recording acoustic guitars, vocals, and other sound sources that require a slightly brighter response. It comes with a protective wood case and microphone sock.
